One of Moray’s major tourist attractions is gearing up for a busy summer season – and hoping to attract more volunteers before doors are opened again in just two weeks.
Volunteers are being sought for a variety of roles at Brodie Castle – from welcoming visitors to helping staff the tea rooms or act as tour guides.
Brodie Castle for the first National Trust for Scotland attraction that gained a gold award for eco-friendly tourism last year, setting a standard that they hope can be maintained in 2015.
Manager Shona Ferguson said: “We have a good number of volunteers – but there is always a turnover each year.
“Our volunteers come from a wide area with some coming in for just one day each week and others for several days a week. We would hope to recruit before we open [on March 29] so that we have a chance to get them working along with other experienced staff and volunteers right away.”
Following a qualifying period as a Brodie Castle volunteer, staff receive a card that provides them with free entry to other National Trust for Scotland properties and shop discounts.
Anyone interested is being asked to contact Shona Ferguson by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 01309 641371.
